The NAVA image at www.nava.org/Flag%20Design/City%20Survey%202004/city_flag_photos/Warwick.jpg and shown in American Flag Survey (2004) and American City Flags (Purcell, 2003) shows ~3:5 a white flag with the city seal centered on it. See at www.warwickri.gov/graphics/cityaddrwseal.gif a black and white image of the seal (official source). The three crosses are possibly inspired by the coat of arms of Warwickshire, in England: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Warwickarms.JPG.

The city clerk sent me a nice image of the flag of the City of Warwick, Rhode Island.

I think Warwick, Rhode Island, and Warwick, England, share arms according to this article:
It says: "We were founded in the traditional New England way – religious freedom issues and trying to break from the oppressive Massachusetts Bay colony. And our seal is very much a connection to Warwick, England. The flag utilizes that seal in a simple and traditional way," said Mayor Scott Avedisian. "It may not be exciting and trendy, but it is a tangible connection to our vibrant and rich history." "
